**   Various Recent Results from 2018   **

Results for Central Illinois Crappie Club´s on April 15th Exelon Tournament at Clinton Lake:
- Water Temperature: 70 degrees at the hot water discharge -- 50 degrees at the dam
  Wind: 15 mph SW     Overcast with drizzle
- We increased our participation from 37 to 42 boats. Given the pre-tournament wind and weather conditions,
 we think that's pretty good. We paid out 8 places and fishing was so tough it only took 4# to get a check.
 Only 8 teams managed a 7 fish limit. The winner had less than 5# and we weighed 5 fish over 1#.
 84 fishermen caught 105 fish that weighed 61.17#. Almost all those fish were returned to the lake alive
 to be caught again. * Thanks for taking good care of your fish.
 
 
 - 1st place went to Dustin Reynolds / Josh Nast with 4.91 lbs (pictured)
   - 2nd place went to Bob Sarko / Rick Clifton with 4.82 lbs

  Results for HOI Crappie Club tournament held on March 30th at Clinton Lake :
- Tim had this (in part) to share: Wow, what a weekend! Saturday started out fantastic, nice bright sunny morning.
 Little to no wind. Then the fishing started and the weather changed. Man did it change. The high for the day was
 at 7am, 38 degrees. By 9am temps had dropped & we were facing 20mph gusts. By noon the lake had 3 foot swells
 and it rained off & on. Fishing was tough, boat control was a challenge & if you were out of the wind, the fish were
 not biting. They weren´t biting much better in the wind either. Couple of teams put a limit in their live-well.
 Appears most of their fish were caught before the winds started, then everything shut down and got real, real slow.
    

  - 1st Place: Davis & Montooth 6.30 lbs. (pictured on Left)
  - 2nd Place: Stoddard & Little 5.80 lbs. (pictured in Middle)
  - 3rd place: Dowdy & Boring 5.06 lbs. (pictured on Right)

  -- Big Fish: Davis and Montooth 1.47 lbs.

  "Upcoming events: April 5th HOI Crappie Club meeting, 6.30pm Presley’s Outdoors in Bartonville.
  Next Tournament is Lake Shelbyville, Wilborn Ramp, Saturday April 21st. 7am – 2pm.
  Hope to see you at both events."   Tim Hanauer
